Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I succesfully installed cygwin as ssh server last month.
But there is a big problem if you use public keys for authentification.
Cvs commands are logged as SYSTEM account, so you cannot know who
make the last changes in the repository.

Best regards,

I've not found any documents that clearly explained it, but what you
need to do is install cygwin (www.cygwin.com) and setup the ssh server
(see here for a howto http://tech.erdelynet.com/cygwin-sshd.html).

Now, test the ssh installation by using putty or ssh to connect to the
computer from the computer on which you wish to use cvs.  If you can log
in, make sure you can run cvs (it needs to be in your path for this cvs
access via ssh to work).

The final step is to set CVS_EXT=ssh.exe or tortoiseplink.exe (this is
available with tortoisecvs www.tortoisecvs.org, and will display a
dialog for the prompts), and connect to  the server using "cvs
-d:ext:username at servername:/repositoryprefix/repositoryname"

List - can we put this on the wiki?  I would do it, but I really don't
know where exactly it should go...
